This parameter can only be changed on stand-alone workstations or when the specific right has been granted by the system. The entries are also available for the audio files which are recorded by this workstation. The station name can be either the predefined Windows station name or a special DigaSystem® station name.
The user can here specify an auto login name to be used the next time DigaSystem® on this workstation is used. Again this can either be the predefined Windows login name or a special DigaSystem® login name with password. A DigaSystem user needs the "Autologin" right.
Lets you select a font with properties.

Settings Tab: Colors
Entry colors depending on file state
The state of an entry is shown by the entry color; in this dialog the meaning of the entry font color can be defined.
Settings Tab: Key-Shortcuts
To change a keyboard short-cut click on the required row then press the new key combination. If this key combination is already assigned to another function the row is displayed with a red background.
To quickly find the function which you want to assign, type its name (or fragments of the name) into the "Search" field. When you type two or more fragments separated by whitespace, only those functions are displayed that contain all fragments. For example, searching for "Dia let" finds the function "Delete dialog" because function "Delete dialog" because it contains both "dia" and "let" (lower/upper case are not considered).
The search is executed as you type. Press the "X" button next to the search field to cancel search and display all functions.
Please note that Windows has assigned several key combinations for its own purposes. Some of these combinations simply cannot be reassigned; for others, assigning them will disable standard behaviour to which you are used from most Windows applications.
See the Reserved Key Combinations page for a list of key combinations which you cannot, or which you should not use here.
To nevertheless define key combination which are technically possible, though not recommended, make a right click on the "Key shortcut" cell of the respective row, and click the desired key combination in the menu that pops up.
Settings Tab: Surround
Automatic completion of file extensions: relevant for the "Import MCA file" function. If activated the here listed file names will be automatically assigned to the corresponding channels when creating a surround file. This means, when loading one file in a directory via the "Import MCA File" function, the other browsing fields will be completed according to these settings.
Settings Tab: Ember+
This tab is only shown, if you have specified a DLL for Ember+ support in parameter DBM|MultiRec|EmberPlusDll. Usually, this will be TIOEmberPlus.DLL, which handles the Ember+ communication with the external device, and is also used as a configuration tool.
|Open the configuration dialog of the TIOEmberPlus.dll. For details, refer to the TIOEmberPlus.dll Technical Manual.|
|Line / Command grid|
|Add line||Add an additional line|
|Change line||Change the number of the selected line|
|Remove line||Remove the selected line|
|Line for Start/Stop commands|
The Ember+ protocol supports explicit "Start" and "Stop" commands on a specific line, distinct from fader movements. With "Line for Start/Stop commands", you can define the number of the line, whose "Start"/"Stop" commands are recognizes by DBM. Setting this to -1 disables the feature.
When you close the Settings Dialog with "OK", the connection to the console will be established and the configuration transmitted. If this fails for any reason (e.g. the device is not responding), you will get an error message with some technical details about the failure.
The settings are stored in the parameters DBM|MultiRec|EmberPlusConfiguration, DBM|MultiRec|EmberPlusActions and DBM|MultiRec|EmberPlusStartStopControlLine. You shouldn't try to manually change the EmberPlusConfiguration parameter with the DigaSystem Admin, but you can always use the DBM's Settings Dialog again to change any aspect of the configuration. You can also use DigaSystem Admin to copy a configuration to the settings of other workstations, which are equipped with an identical external console.
